Requesting your TCC to file your 3921 through Mail/Fax
Carta will generate the properly formatted 3921 file you need to upload. Before this can happen, we need a Transmitter Control Code from you. If you have filed Electronic Forms with the IRS before, you may already have this. Update it under Company > Settings > Profile.
If not, you will need to file Form 4419 (Application for Filing Information Returns Electronically), steps are below:
1. Download this form from the IRS: Requesting-TCC-form.pdf
2. Fill out the details as we have in the sample below.
3. Fax this form to the IRS, phone number: (877) 477-0572
4. Once the TCC is mailed back to you, log in to Carta and navigate to 'Settings' under Company. Then click 'Profile' to add the TCC code
It should be noted that your TCC will be deleted from the FIRE system if you do not electronically file Forms 1042-S, 1097, 1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, 5498, 8027, 8955-SSA, or W-2G for two consecutive years, resulting in the need to submit the Form 4419 again.
